How do I get a high-quality design file?
You have spent all your time making a perfect design for your product, but an error message will appear. You may have seen a notice that the resolution of some layers is average, or the image quality is too low to continue the design at all.
To improve the design, you really have to start with a good foundation. After the production is complete, it may be difficult to increase the size of the image and maintain the same sharpness. Use the software of your choice to help the image meet our minimum quality requirements. The software is not limited to Adobe Photoshop or other expensive software.
What are All-Over-Print (AOP) products?
AOP stands for All-Over-Print and is highly utilized for many product designs.
The process of producing such prints involves custom-designed large templates, then spreading the fabric on the template, then cutting the fabric precisely and sewing it together. This allows highly accurate designs, especially pattern-based designs.
There are some key differences between All-Over-Print and Direct-to-Garment printing techniques you may want to consider when creating your products.
What file size and type should my image be?
When uploading an image, please use the recommended image pixel in the product detail page. Save your file as a JPG or PNG. The nearer pixel it is, the better quality it will be.
Pros and cons of AOP
AOP products do well with pattern designs and accentuate colors due to the polyester material used to make the garment. This means that colors will pop, look brighter, and more vibrant when making an AOP design.
AOP products can be a bit more time-consuming, taking longer to cover all areas of the garment in the mockup generator. They don't do as well with dark colors, because the design is printed over a white material which, when stretched, can show white lines between the patterns of your image. AOP's also require a higher resolution image when designing
How to remove backgrounds from your images?
For Ultraviolet LED Inkjet printing (all garments except AOP), we always recommend removing the image background to make your design stand out from the base fabric color.
Personally, we recommend that you choose Adobe Photoshop as the tool, but in fact, there are many graphics programs that can help you achieve the same result.
An important detail to mention is that you should save your artwork as PNG, because this format supports transparency, which is different from traditional JPG.
What technology is used to print on t-shirts?
Our standard process is the Thermal transfer and Ultraviolet LED Inkjet method of printing. That means we can create photo-quality prints, the amount of colors used doesn't affect pricing, and there aren't any order minimums.
How durable are Thermal transfer printed shirts compared to Ultraviolet LED Inkjet Printed shirts?
Our experience shows us that Thermal transfer printed shirts are just as durable as Ultraviolet LED Inkjet printed shirts when it comes to washability.
Can I sell personalized products using Inkpodfulfillment?
The answer is yes.We named it customer POD.We recommend that you install our dedicated customizer to enhance your customer’s experience.In the meantime, you can still accomplish your goal by manually editing each order before sending it to production.
When is a white underbase used?
A white under base isn't printed on white garments. Because under base is white ink, it'll print on other garment colors when a print file design includes the color white.
It may also be used if the print file design doesn't include the color white, but is generally lighter than the garment color. Depending on the design, white underbase may not be printed on all garment colors.
What should I know about （AOP）all-over printing?
All-over printing or sublimation is a printing process where your design is printed on paper with dye ink and then transferred directly onto the fabric with heat. Sublimation lets you cover all of the garment with your design instead of, for example, DTG printing that has a smaller area to work with.
Due to the peculiarities of the sublimation process, graphics may shift up to 2 inches when printed. Because of this, we don't recommend using designs that require precise placement.
Why does my orders have a vinegar smell?
When unpacking a new shirt or hoodie with a print, you might notice a vinegar-like smell or an off-white residue. Don't worry, that's not unusual - it's from a fixation agent applied during the printing process and it's not permanent.
Can I use an image from the Internet?
It’s best to use your own photos, logos or artwork. We don’t recommend using images you’ve found somewhere online because you probably don’t have the right to use it.On the other hand,it’s probably way too small to print out so well.
